For each potential investment, we consider the positive and negative externalities of the business or project at hand and develop a comprehensive assessment of how an investment will solve for community needs.
We aim to strike a fair balance between reporting consistent metrics across our portfolio each year and creating metrics to fit the impact thesis of a given investment. Each investment falls into at least one of three buckets: economic, social, and/or environmental. We benchmark investments against the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals and other industry benchmarks to communicate impact in a universal language.
For added impact integrity, our partners at Initiative for a Competitive Inner City provide independent advice on our impact measurement and reporting. We invite you to explore our recent impact reports.
